Highbush Cranberry vs Borealis Haskap (Honeyberry)

Viburnum trilobum

Lonicera caerulea Borealis

Highbush Cranberry
Borealis Haskap (Honeyberry)

Highbush Cranberry produces attractive white flowers in late June and bears edible fruit that matures to a bright red colour in the late summer.

This shrub, native to much of Canada, is fast growing, and its fruit can be eaten raw or cooked into a sauce.

Borealis Haskap is a popular variety of the hardy haskap shrub that produces delicious blue fruit. Haskaps, or honeyberries as they are sometimes called, are excellent for fresh eating and cooking. Borealis is a popular variety of haskap because of its large sweet berries.

It's a very cold hardy, fast-growing shrub that begins producing an abundance of fruit in as few as three years. Borealis, like the Tundra Haskap, does not self-pollinate well.

Borealis is an early pollinating variety. Pair with other early pollinators to have a higher yield.
Aurora is a great companion variety for the Borealis.
